How does this happen?

Apple makes a profit of just under $400 on every $1,000 sale, on average.

Android profit per $1,000 sale ??  I assume they make much smaller profits, hence the lower unit price.

om Q3 2013 to Q3 2014 from 18% of the market to nearer 12% of the market according to the latest figures from IDC.
